Hotaru Glass beads are popular as a souvenir from Okinawa along with Ryukyu glass. They are the same as the Tonbo glass beads made by Takashi Hirose, and are artisan glass crafts.  Glass is melted with a burner using skillful techniques to create beautiful beads with many layers. The method of making is called burner work or lamp work.  Venetian glass beads are made in the same way.  The feature is that silver leaves are put in the beads during firing, so they reflect light and sparkle.

Hotaru glass and mother of pearl bracelet

This bracelet is good for people who love marine sports fashion and vacation to tropical beaches.

The size is SM (small to medium).   I designed these for women, but they are unisex so it's ok for men to wear as long as the size fits.

Bracelets with plenty of tropical beach atmosphere. Accent with natural wood beads and gentle mother-of-pearl Schell luster.

Mother-of-pearl is said to strengthen the power of protection and healing. Many people purchase it as a pair with a men's hematite bracelet.

All Hotaru beads of this size I use are all "glow in the dark" types. It stores sunlight and glows like a firefly after sunset. It's very romantic.
